Category: English Show Apparel
Purchase: Purchased directly from the manufacturer, $119.40 + Shipping. Shipping is high considering they stuff them in a postal provided bag. And shipping is Very, Very, Very slow.
Likes: Mail order is easy and you can almost get a sale. I was told by the manufacturer that they would make a very suitable show breech so I bought one in brown and one in white. They are a nice, heavy weight breech with a full leather seat at a reasonable price.
Dislikes: There is not quality control at this company. I always order 'low rise' and petite. Everyone of my breeches fit differently. Everyone is a different length, there is no consistent inseam for the 'Petite' length. Everyone is a different rise, again, no consistent 'rise' for their 'low rise' breeches. Everyone has a different quality leather. I have a pair of Enduracool breeches from years ago which are sized perfectly and fit perfectly and have butter soft leather. I bought four pair of these breeches this year, two are wonderful and the other two are worthless. The leather feels like cardboard, only cardboard would stick better in the saddle.
Quality: Construction is iffy. Again, I have four pair of these in various colors, all purchased last year. For some reason, the brown fit great and have great leather. BUT the brown ones 'let' every time I wash them and the hem has come down on both legs. Quality of the leather full seat is always a guess. Two pair have nice quality leather, the other two feel like cardboard. All the breeches I own from this company are poorly sewn. Mostly I have to re-sew the hems and the waist. On two i have had to stitch over the leather full seat to keep it from coming off.
Summary: They are quick and easy to order. As long as you purchase on sale, they are cheap. There is NO QUALITY CONTROL. Hems and waist almost always have to be restitched. Some times the leather is great and sometimes it is like cardboard. And their customer service is not great. The owner herself, is a bit nasty. And if they tell you the breeches are shipping within the week, it normally means within the month. I would never recommend them as show breeches.
